My 9 month old daughter has started (a month or so ago) throwing her head back very hard when she is tired or irritated. I worry she could get hurt because she'll do it no matter where she is. I never let her sit on hard floor (other than carpet) because I worry she may thrash her head back and get very hurt. The frequency of it has increased lately. She throws her head so hard that I feel she may get whiplash or something - especially when she is in a shopping cart or highchair where the back of her head is not supported. Is this just normal development or something I should be concerned about? Thank you!!
